    Meh, why not. I could be persuaded for a Sunday ride with some slow pedalers... as long as we hit Hooters at least once.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Very strong possibility... unless some good trails melt off around here between now and then

    Anyone have current conditions? I know the area got 1 or 2 inches late Wed. Yesterday (Thur) I was in Penrose which had an inch or so on the ground...

    Can't Saturday and probably going to Heil or Hall on Sunday, staying close to the front range to partake in Superbowl festivities.

    Fingers crossed for next weekend though.....

    Current conditions...

    Just got back from a ride out there (south shore/red gate). There's still a little snow/mud in the canyons, but it's fairly warm and quite windy, so I expect it'll be mostly gone by tomorrow.

    Voodoo, Outer Limits and other trails in full sun will be good to go for sure.

    By the way.... I park at the red gate which allows me to avoid paying the fees to enter the resivor area. So my questions is, is there anywhere to make a donation to the maintainance of the trails. Are they maintained by a group or by tyhe park services?

    I feel it is only right. I am using the trails. I feel like I should give something back.

    The best way to show your support is to sac up and buy a park pass. This shows the park management that mountainbiking will be a revenue generator for them and they will be more inclined to work with mountainbikers on trail building projects and access issues. Also there is some evidence of vandalism (broken glass) in the parking lot at the red gate. To avoid the horror of returning from a ride and finding your vehicle broken into the best thing to do is buy a pass. Inside the park there will be no worries about your car and what's inside. Believe me; I speak from experience. My car was broken into last fall the @ssholes took everything: ipod, camera, gymbag, jerseys, shorts, and all of my CD's. The best thing to do is but a pass.

    Say it ain't so.....

    kberkle,
    1. When are the horsetards going to start the reroute of Stonehenge?

    2. Sad to hear bout the breakin. Was it during the day while other vehicles were parked there? Any idea why they picked yours?

    3. Pueblo reminds me so much of EL Paso, Mexico. Car breakins for the change on your seat is par for the course, (social-cultural reference omitted) many tell me los chicos son inclined to feel that the risks are worth it and they often have a plan of action and are que defensive without regard for the welfare of the decent folk. When I park my Honda near the trail head I know it might be prey, fortunately it is of no value and ain't noting inside that the Cholo's want, 'cept maybe my hairnet and some huffingmaterials. Both of which are typically reading "E".

    The best place to park is easilly accessable and seen on the map. From HWY 96 take the southern most park entrance, the one highest up the hill and just below the bluff's. Stay on this road to the park booth, buy a park pass, stay straight for 100 yards. Turn left at the four way intersection and park here. From this spot you can even pick up a trail map at the kiosk to the right of the campground building. From this spot there is easy acess to the conduit trail, south shore trail, and my personal favorit start Duke Trail. Take Conduit to Duke and left on Rodeo to start your day.

    My vehicle was broken into during the middle of the day and there was another unharmed. Why take chances buy a pass $6 no worries.

    The absolute best thing to support our trails is simple. It would be great for the state park rangers to drive through a parking lot full of happy mountainbikers. Thats all. You help every time you buy a pass or annual pass. We still appreciate people coming down and parking at the red gate. I'm happy to see people enjoying our trails. But $6 is trivial in comparison to what we all can spend on parts.

    While you are down here get some good Mexican food too. I recomend Mexi-deli
    215 E Abriendo (across from the library) good food, good beer prices too. Arribas on the corner of the BLVD and 96 is ok but they don't sell beer.

    Support the trails, pay for a parks pass. The red gate is not the main access to the trail system, the rez is. Show the park that mtn bikers love the area. And trail IMPROVEMENTS are made on the advice of a professional trail building company. So, CSPRINGS and whoever else is wondering, if you see a trail changed, it for the good of all, not just some. Yeah, we noticed that someone went in and "undid" what the horsemen had done. Nice job, It makes the trails club look real good

    clear outside

    ....but my fiends in the springs say there is some snow falling and theyre on their way after they get their fill of bacteria at the Waffler Haus. I haven't seen the reroute but if I see anyone replacing rocks back on the trail I will definately thank them for all of us.

    In the odd case you logon, Buzz and Iceman.....postpone by one hour I have to trim the hedges before we head out to play. And the new Haro is chomping at the bit....

    I was down their today. They barely got a dusting and it was all gone real early in the morning. The trails were pretty much dry with a few wets spots here and there. It was a bit chilly until the Sun poked out around 2 or so. It started to flurry once then it went away. There were only a handful of us down there, a lot more people walking their dogs then biking. But it was pleasant if you dressed properly and it was nice having the trails to myself! Maybe temps were around 40 at the most. There were some flurries out West that kept wanting to move towards the Rez, I predict it will move there sometime this evening, how much it drops is unsure. Most likely a quick dusting. The Weather report says 30% chance of snow and temps in the 40's.

    Peace.

    Reservoir was up last weekend!

    Anybody heading to the rez soon beware: the Voodoo loop approach was muddy and the lake was higher than usual last Sunday. The crossing was a bit tedious and further upstream than usual. The water was deep enough to infiltrate your bottom bracket on the ride across unless you pick your spot. The trail will sustain real damage in these wetlands if much more riding is done in that valley bottom when it is this wet. It may be that a serious reroute (like up on the cliffs near the road) of the Voodoo approach is called for, if this is a common condition. Also, the horse riders did finish the small reroute of the Stonehenge trail, though the reroute is very short and definitely needed, since the old route rides over an undercut in the creekbed which is sure to soon collapse.
    Peace on dirt, and ride gently on the land. It has to last for generations.
